Re: "Playing SimCity"

I think if you look at Greenfields you get a pretty good simbase type of game. The economy is still exponential, but you don't fight for the first part of the game. You build a big base, you try and build it faster than the enemy, and then you clash only once you've reached epic artillery, shields a...

Re: Gritty industrial panel atlas

I was thinking of using this fairly extensively for Zero-K. It could help a lot with getting more consistent building models.

Re: Random wip 2012+

If you're going to be making this for BA:R I'd suggest cutting the categories down. Zero-K seperates the categories the way it does because everything can build everything and these are the exact number of categories we need to fit everything in one panel: If you're only taking up half the page you ...

Re: Looks like they are still developing this..

He has put in engine changes, but there are a few things like the gestural selection (rather than box selection) which might be interesting.

Zero-K 1v1 Tournament for mid 2012

Tournament applications are closed! The format is double elimination, best of 3. Players will be seeded by ELO. Players will have a week to play their games each round. You can still apply for the reserves, who will replace any players who do not compete their first round or their first losers brack...

Re: Random wip 2012+

Smoths untextured models he just posted are actually a really good example of this on the gross scale, as all they have right now is the large areas colored-in without any detail painted on top of them yet. side comment, clever of you catching what I was doing with that. It is exactly as you said. ...

Re: Random wip 2012+

Re-using texture space (like the barrels here, or the legs) is always good, and while a naive auto-UV might lead to some odd dark patches where they shouldn't be, cleaning it up a little bit by hand isn't hard. If you look at Crems models they all reuse UV space and have heavy AO baking. Anyway Benz...

To be fair, American IP holders own the rights to Total Annihilation too... and... yeah. There is a chance, with new ownership (and you don't know who these people are, really) that you can finally get some communication going. Japanese companies pay very, very, very little attention to their foreig...

Re: BA model replacements

What exactly do you mean? Sorry, to be clear, I'm responding to this: While you legally have every right to do with them what you will, I'd rather they be used for a single project. Reason being; when people see the game for the first time, I'd rather not they see multiple versions of what looks (a...

Re: BA model replacements

You know, given how many people are telling you to 'Ask Sak', you might try asking Sak. :) The Packo is a GPL model I found and mashed up. Not Crems. The AA ship is ENTIRELY Cremuss's. He left the texture 'uncompleted' though, which is why it doesn't look as good. I polished it up a little for ZK, a...

Re: nuke animation

This was made by Quantum, for CA. 'AA' (Nixa's version?) nicked it and branded it and people STILL call it the 'AA' nuke- credit where appropriate please: that is Quant's nuke! And yeah, it's the nuke in Zero-K, which means it's free to nick for whatever purposes. One problem though is that it obscu...

Re: All the good players?

You know it's funny, we get this kind of thing it seems every 'generation' or so. I've never even heard of 90% of the players mentioned here. Really high level 1v1 died out eons ago, when Day and Andy, the last of the old 1v1 comet players, then slowly anyone who could even keep up with them, left S...

Re: Challenge Mod

AA (and OTA?) has just never thought in round numbers, it's only natural that derivatives like this don't think in round numbers either. Since all the damages, costs, incomes, bp's, bt's, etc are ALL non-round, there doesn't appear to be a reason to round the numbers, because it won't help you compa...

Re: Map: Sand Castles

No, that black was deliberate, because the walls are perfectly straight, any texture would warp as the walls got slopier, picking up more and more of the texture from the water area. If its all black, no warping. New version is going to have sloped eges, -with- texture. Thus: http://i.imgur.com/6lya...

Oh smoth I love you so much. Map devs cannot be expected to balance this kind of value, not for every game, this was the same decision we made with wind gens.
